  • What’s the meaning of the symbol “®”?

    “®”is the symbol of Registration. It means that the trademark is registered. It is normally indicated on the top right of the mark. The registered trademark with a symbol of“®”can be attached or labelled to the designated goods or services so as to let the public know that the relevant brand has already been registered as a trade mark. Any person who falsely represents that a sign is a registered trade mark or makes a false representation as to the goods or services for which a trade mark is registered by using a symbol of“®”commits an offence.

Any corporations or individuals without permission of the registered trademark owner cannot use the latter’s trademark. Otherwise, they will assume criminal and civil liabilities.

  • What’s the meaning of the symbol “TM”?

    “TM”is a symbol of trademark.

Either a registered or non-registered trademark can have the symbol “TM” indicated on its right top but it is normally used on a non-registered trademark.
  • If a company covers up its infringement of any registered trade mark by using my registered trade mark as its company name, can I take action to stop its infringement?

  • Can a registered trademark be transferred? If so, what is the procedure?

    If you want to transfer your trademark to another legal entity, you can do so by submitting an application for transfer together with supporting documents, if necessary, to the country where the subject trade mark was registered.
